KPHS Students Participate In A Day In The Life Of The Nissequogue River (Gallery)

Written By: KPN - Oct• 21•14

On Wednesday, October 15th, Kings Park High School students took part in New York State’s new program – A Day in the Life of the Nissequogue River.

Kings Park High School teachers Rob Gelling and Mary Ellen Fay took over 20 students to the shores of the Nissequogue River to participate in a hands-on field trip which allowed the students to collect firsthand information about the river, gain knowledge about natural resources and explore how the river and estuary fits into the larger ecosystem.

The students, from Kings Park High School SEAS Club and the Independent Science Research Program, collected data by several methods, including catching fish in nets and collecting water and invertebrate, to analyze and share in order to create a portrait of the status of the river and estuary ecosystems.

“The students get a break from the classroom setting,” Mr. Gelling stated. “Clearly a welcome break from all the testing. The kids are getting an authentic experience in science.”

Twenty seven school districts and over 1,000 students participated – collecting data from all along not only the Nissequogue River but also the Carmans River. These schools, in partnership with 30 local organizations and agencies, helped these students learn about Long Island’s River and estuary ecosystems and hopefully inspire them to become stewards of water quality and natural resources in our community.
